On November evening we will make a musical tour from the Middle Ages to the end of the 20th century in Spain, focusing on the Baroque music and flamenco for its fusion. We will also make a literary trip basing the lyrics of the songs on poems from particular periods. It will be a very vocal concert – a Mexican soprano Julieta González-Springer and Spanish cantaor Borja Soto will perform, accompanied by an excellent and multi-talented guitarist – Rainer Maria Nero.
